In March, the underground beds of the Nikolayevsky mine, a new Cat R1600 load-haul-dump machine was put into operation. In the entire history of our company, this is the first LHD machine supplied to Dalpolimetall by the Caterpillar concern.
The design of the Cat R1600 is phenomenal. For a LHD machine with a maximum weight of 44 tons, this is an important characteristic. The performance of the Caterpillar R1600 is also at its height, because the digger of the LHD machine of this model contains more than 10 tons of rock mass. With such a modern technology, the work of the LHD machine drivers at the Nikolayevsky mine will become even more efficient.
